HIGH POINT, N.C. — An armored car crash snarled traffic on Interstate 85 in North Carolina after the driver apparently fell asleep.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Thursday that the Brink’s truck ran off northbound I-85 near High Point about 2 p.m. Wednesday. The vehicle climbed an embankment, hit a bridge and came to rest in the right lane of the highway.

The driver and two other occupants suffered minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved.

The right lane of the interstate was closed for about 90 minutes near U.S. 311.

Police say they think the driver fell asleep and will be charged with making an unsafe movement.
